Global Inspiration

Cultural experience. Yearn to travel. Distant shores.

After experiencing limited travel due to the pandemic, we're bringing the outer world into our homes through a variety of motifs and colors.

Our longing to see the world where we discover both new and old things has not gone away. Inspiration from around the globe can be found through our fabrics in chinoiserie patterns, kilim rug looks, and tassel fringe accents.

Bold Yellow

Happiness. Enlightenment. Optimism.

We're using color to jump start hope and inspiration. Everyone is looking forward to a better year and yellow is the color of optimism.

Yellow is taking a center stage rather than being used as an occasional accent. The bold brightness of this color amplifies feelings of happiness and encouragement.

Classic Traditionalism

Timeless. Old world influence. Mix and match eras.

Personalization is all in the details, and traditionalism offers the versatility to bring together various historic characteristics with a modern sensibility.

Traditional motifs in both classic and fresh on-trend colors are a great way to bring old world influences into the home. Pair with the timeless look of a Three Finger Pinch Pleat or the more contemporary Olivia Pleat to enhance the style of the room.

Browns, charcoals, and forest greens mixed with different textures in fabrics and hard finishes create a room that is balanced and rooted in restfulness.
